Why do so many journalists struggle to write about the "population problem"? The data shows that having one fewer children in developed countries is the best way to reduce carbon emissions via personal choice, and yet many stories fail to mention reproduction as an issue to be tackled at all, choosing instead to focus on vegan diets and flying less. In this panel, we'll discuss the challenges facing reporters in writing about this controversial issue, digging into the origins of Malthusian theory, the childfree movement, and reproductive rights and family planning.
We work hard throughout the year to not only get the stories, but to get them right. And, for what? Awards, of course! Now it’s time to shift the spotlight on ourselves for a moment while we honor the best environmental reporting of 2018 at SEJ’s Annual Awards for Reporting on the Environment, including the first Ray Reece "Excellence in Environmental Journalism" Student Award and the second annual $10,000 Nina Mason Pulliam Award for the best of the best. We’ll kick off the celebration with an eye-opening look at the best environmental photography from the past year.
